Movies & TV shows about Teachers & Students

Below is a short list of movies and TV series about teachers and students that I have watched and recommend.  Note that many of these may be difficult to obtain in the US, as they are either International productions or are otherwise not "mainstream" -- but they all have very good messages about education, schooling, teaching, or the social relationships among students. Enjoy!

Movies/TV series about Teachers:

The Class (2008)  (French)

High School (1968)

Please Sir! (TV Series 1968–1972) (United Kingdom)


Movies/TV series about Students:

Aliens in America (TV Series 2007–2008) (US)

For You in Full Blossom (TV Series 2007) (Japanese)
(Original Japanese Title: Hanazakari no Kimitachi e)
(Closing Theme Song -- "Peach": http://youtu.be/47yK8VOHQ0s )

Once Up on a Time in High School (International English title) (Korean)
